South American Pavilion

Amidst lush plants and tropical warmth, this indoor-outdoor exhibit treats visitors to recreations of the native environments of close to 30 South American birds. An emphatic greeting from the Southern Lapwings means you're in the right place; peek into the dense foliage to find secretive birds like Red-capped Cardinals, Blue-grey Tanagers, and so many more.

 

We'd like to thank our volunteer photographer, Samuel Harris, for his help updating our Exhibit images.
